You are good for purposes of becoming a paladin, and evil for purposes of becoming a dread necromancer.(But not at the same time.)

One presumes that the whole "for the purposes of becoming a(n) [_insert class here_]" idea extends to ALL alignment restrictions by Class, yes? So long as you don't take classes with contradictory alignment requirements?
For example: Monks must be Lawful. Bards must be non-Lawful. Barbarians must be non-Lawful. So a Monk/Barbarian is not possible, nor is a Monk/Bard ... but a Bard/Barbarian is.
Meanwhile, a Warlock must be Chaotic and/or Evil (thus, LE, NE, CE, CN, and CG are all allowed). So a Monk/Warlock is possible (LE), but a Paladin/Warlock is not (Paladins must be LG, Warlocks cannot be LG).

1> Point buy. 32 points. Don't roll stats until I tell you to. I'll tell you to when you pick a class. This is important.

But they are still 'humanoid' outsiders. Just like how orcs are 'monsterous humanoid'. Basically anything bipedal that can be mistaken for a human from a long distance, is usually humanoid.

I think you are overcomplicating your game, in terms of how Class Levels are being selected. Here's my alternate suggestion, which will have almost exactly the same effect:MAKING A CHARACTER
- Attributes are determined with the Point-buy rules, spending no more than 32 points.
- No race with a Level Adjustment greater than +1 may be selected.
- Level Adjustment does not apply ... yet.
- All characters begin play with 2 levels of the Commoner class.
- You may not select any feat which is restricted to 1st level or "beginning characters only".
- You do NOT get quadruple skill points at first level. Tough luck.
- You start with precisely 2hp, plus two hit-dice worth of your Constitution bonus. Tough luck, again.
- If you have a level adjustment, then all Attack, Skill, and Saving Throw rolls are made with a -1 penalty. Sucks to be you.
REACHING LEVEL THREE
- You will acquire one level of a normal Adventurer class (Fighter, Bard, Wizard, etc).
- Your feat for this level can be any feat normally restricted to first-level characters.
- You DO get quadruple the usual number of skill points.
- You get maximum hit points for your hit die.
- If you have a level adjustment, you continue to suffer a -1 penalty on all Attack, Skill, and Saving Throw rolls. it still sucks to be you.
REACHING LEVEL FOUR
- If you had a level adjustment, you do not gain a class level. Instead, your ECL rises by 1, and you begin using the normal rules for Level-Adjusted races. On the other hand, no more -1 penalty, huzzah!
- Everyone else follows the normal rules for character advancement. Lucky them.
LEVEL FIVE AND BEYOND
- Normal rules apply from here on out.
The advantage is, noone will LOSE anything for getting their first level ... eventually everything becomes normal and by-the-book ... and most people can answer their own questions about creatign and advancing their charactr, just by opening the PHB.

You're roleplaying yourself. So you were human before the crash, you may still be human after if you pick that as your race, but you can be something else, like a goblin.
